Lene Gammelgaard reached the summit of Everest in 1996, as part of an expedition led by Scott Fischer, who tragically lost his life on the mountain.

In recognition of her pioneering concepts and excellence in innovative, sustainable corporate strategies, she was honoured with the EU's Business Award in 2019.
